There are plenty of awesome women in manga, and since we aren't getting a magical girl version of this (even though we should), it would be nice to get some representation for the female characters that do exist in the franchises. I don't know about you, but this is definitely surprising for me. Watching Naruto, Monkey, and Goku team up also makes the game feel like the manga/anime Avengers.

Characters from Naruto, One Piece, Dragonball Z, and Death Note were shown in the trailer.

One of the major surprises during the Xbox E3 2018 briefing was the new Bandai Namco fighting game, Jump Force.

Bandai Namco describes the game like so: "universes collide as legendary manga heroes and villains are transported to our reality".

Jump Force does the Dragon Ball: FighterZ thing where every button is linked to an auto-combo, which means you can immediately start feeling like Goku with a few taps of the X button.

The common factor between these manga series is that they were all published in Shonen Jump. Jump Force is set to release in 2019.

My biggest problem with shonen is that it tends to really badly sideline its female characters in games. Already, this is quite the party for Shonen Jump alumni. For a proper anniversary celebration, it'd be great to see some classic series represented, too, like Yu Yu Hakusho, Fist of the North Star, Cobra, Rurouni Kenshin... hey, let's have one of the kids from Slam Dunk smash Naruto in the face with a basketball, while we're at it?
